Here is some of the material that you'll find inside the 16-page document. Private Screenings The GAMES Guide to Home Video Games By Phil Wiswell (GAMES magazine, December 1982) On any given night, it is conceivable that more TV sets are tuned to Pac-Man than to Dan Rather. Despite the fuss from some fronts, video games are here to stay. After all, how can a game of gin rummy compete with saving the earth from an alien attack? Though equally turned on to arcade and home video games, we find...

Advanced Programming Techniques For Your Atari - Files ====================================================== Unlike most Atari programming books that claim to cover advanced topics and only cover a few things or quickly gloss over the advanced areas, this one covers  quite a few advanced topics in some depth. In particular, many chapters cover creating custom disk and cassette boot images. As such, I've included sample images for all of them in case you run into  problems. Unfortunately...

Scans of Gray Chang's handwritten notebook detailing the development process of the Atari 400/800 game Claim Jumper, published by Synapse Software. Kevin Savetz scanned this notebook, with permission from Gray, in December 2014. The hi-res, 600 DPI TIFF version expands to 21 GB. I could never get these TIFF files to render right in the Internet Archive in-browser viewer. But when I converted them to JPGs it worked, so you can view the notebook in browser here.
